“Amazing” Bible Prophecy: Sounds of The Apocalypse?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on January 5, 2014

All you inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see, when he lifts up a banner on the mountains; and when he blows a trumpet, hear.” [Isaiah 18:3]

Listen to the strange groaning from the sky that’s spooked Canada. People all over the world have reported similar sounds, including a 2012 instance that was heard by people across continents, but no one can yet answer who or what is making the creepy sounds.


One sip of Ethiopian coffee – and already able to connect the dots – in the following video American theologian, Paul Begley plays an audio of all the different sounds heard around the world! According to him the Apocalypse sounds seem to be coming from Heaven. I like how he air-drums the Kebero.


Was Paul Begley thinking about the bass drum of the Ethiopian Church? I wonder if he is familiar with the music of the great Ethiopian Prophet, Apostle and hymnologist, Saint Yared who was in heaven to hear the angels praising God with musical instruments such as the Inzira (a large flute), the Masinquo (a one-stringed violin), the Tsenatsil (a type of sistrum), the Kebero (a large drum), and the Begena (great harp).

Anyways, those strange sounds are almost identical to the sounds we hear in the Ethiopian Church. From those strange noises I certainly do recognize the sounds of the Kebero / Drum /; the Meleket /Trumpet / and the Begena /The Ethiopian Harp/. Listen, watch & wake up!


The Most Ancient Hebrew Engraving Found in Jerusalem Deciphered

My Note: the letters which were written during the 10th century B.C. in an ancient language that was not Hebrew have a striking similarity with the Ethiopic writing system. Any connection to The Queen of Sheba?


An ancient eight-letter inscription — dating back to King Solomon’s reign in Jerusalem some 3,000 years ago — was deciphered by a researcher from the University of Haifa, shedding light on the Solomonic kingdom’s impressively sophisticated administrative system.

The carving was discovered on a clay jug in the Ophel area, near the southern wall of the Temple Mount, by a Hebrew University archaeological team headed by Dr. Eilat Mazar. It is considered the most ancient Hebrew engraving to emerge from the archaeological digs in Jerusalem to date.

However, the meaning of the cryptic inscription eluded researchers until Professor Gershon Galil of the University of Haifa interpreted it as a classification of a type of wine stored in the jug. He published his findings in the journal “New Studies on Jerusalem.”

According to Galil, the first intact letter of the inscription was actually the last letter of a longer word that got cut off and represented the date. The middle portion refers to the type of wine in the jug, a cheap variety. The final letter was also cut off from a longer word, and according to Galil listed the location from which the wine was sent.

Galil estimated that the carving was written in the middle of the tenth century BCE, after King Solomon built the First Temple, his palaces, and the surrounding walls that unified the three areas of the city — the Ophel area, the city of David, and the Temple Mount. These tremendous infrastructural projects contributed, Galil said, to the sudden need for copious quantities of poor-quality wine.

This wine was not served on the table of King Solomon nor in the Temple,” Galil wrote. “Rather it was probably used by the many forced laborers in the building projects and the soldiers that guarded them. Food and drinks for these laborers were mainly held in the Ophel area.” His theory is shored up by pottery fragments found in Arad, Galil wrote.

Beyond that, Galil emphasized that the find lends support to claims of an organized bureaucratic system and provides evidence that writing was prevalent at the time.

The ability to write and store the wine in a large vessel designated for this purpose, while noting the type of wine, the date it was received, and the place it was sent from, attests to the existence of an organized administration that collected taxes, recruited laborers, brought them to Jerusalem, and took care to give them food and water,” Galil said.

Scribes that could write administrative texts could also write literary and historiographic texts, and this has very important implications for the study of the Bible and understanding the history of Israel in the biblical period.”
